Master Study Club Global Business & Sustainability

The Master Study Club of Global Business & Sustainability (GBS) is part of STAR, RSM’s official student association. The study club organises activities to socialise, meet faculty members outside of the classroom, network with businesses for internships or career opportunities, and acquire new skills. It also organises an annual study trip to destinations such as Copenhagen, Tallinn or Riga.

Events by the study club include introduction days, monthly social gatherings including an alumni event, company visits, masterclasses, and a global business and sustainability conference with speakers from all spheres of society – businesses, NGOs and governmental bodies.

You should join the Master Study Club Global Business & Sustainability to enrich your experience as a master student at RSM.

Other GBS Events 

In addition to the activities organised by the Master Study Club, the Department of Business and Society Management encourages students to host their own events. In 2006, this resulted in the Erasmus Next Top Idea Evening, a study-trip to Brussels, an elections debate, an application and CV training workshop, a workshop on Al Gore’s movie, the launch of the World Investment Report, the ‘CSR Entrepreneurs’ meeting (in which a large number of alumni show how they ‘walk the talk’ in CSR), other book launches and methodology workshops and the creation of a GBS year book. 

Each year, we organise alumni events with visits from interesting speakers, and social drinks with your professors and alumni of GBS. This event is fun and a great opportunity for networking and learning about the wide array of jobs open to you as a GBS graduate. 


With more than 6,500 members, Study Association Rotterdam School of Management (STAR) is Europe’s largest student-run study association, and the most active and professional study association in the Netherlands. STAR brings together RSM’s entire student body to greatly enrich student life with a full line-up of social and career-oriented events held throughout the year. STAR has exceptionally close relations with the corporate world, and regularly invites leaders in international business and politics to meet our students via activities such as the STAR Management Week and the Erasmus Recruitment Days.
